Summary

The first attempt by the Norse explorers to settle in the New World has ended in disaster. With most of their better warriors dead in a battle with the Penobscot tribe, the survivors decide to head home across the wide and empty seas. They would risk a battle with King Harald Finehair. What they do not know is that they have left their Navigator alone and surrounded by enemies.

The novel follows the two brothers Erik the Navigator and Fótr Larsson as they both do what they must to survive. Erik must learn to live like a Skraeling, and Fótr must fight the enemies of the Clan of the Wolf.

Summoned by Ylva the volva, Fótr is charged with a quest which seems impossible while Erik has to fight Penobscot warriors who are intent on vengeance.

the end

so, this is book 4 of "The New World" series. first three books were really awesome! good plot and interesting insight into the Viking age. but, we could do without this part. it just seems a lot like a stretch. most of the exciting events are dealt with in the first three books. still enjoyed listening to Maston York. what a guy!

Loved This Series!

All the way to the end I loved this series. The clan of the fox takes on new challenges in their two worlds. Eric the Navigator finds his home in the New World while his younger brother finds the warrior within and follows his destiny home. A great journey into how it might have been for these early explorers. The narration was excellent and I look forward to reading/listening to more from this author (there is plenty more).
